Airports and Transfers

About 7 km (4 miles) south of downtown Tegucigalpa, Aeropuerto Internacional Toncontín (TGU) has been nicknamed the "Stop and Drop," referring to the steep descents necessary to reach the short runway. A few international flights land here, although San Pedro Sula hosts many more.

There are special taxis at the airport, usually nicer cars and minivans. They charge more than regular city taxis, but their direct access to the airport often makes it worth the money. Expect to pay L150 to L200 to get to most hotels.
